Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
What's so different about Talon?
Most people underestimate Talon, or at least I think they do. What makes Talon so unique is his high capability for AoE burst. Talon can manage to burst ADC/APC down within less then a second time frame with practice. But in return, this doesn't come with ease. This guide is for people who wanna leave the bronze - silver range into higher grounds like Gold and Platinum.
This is my first guide so feel free to leave positive criticism and tell me what I need to improve in.
The reason why I get AD marks instead of armor pen marks is because AD marks help you to cs more efficiently. And since this guide is meant to target Bronze/Silver players, I think it should be the runes you run but feel free to use Armor Pen Marks and Quints.
The reason why I run Mana regen seals is so you can harass more with your W and never be too low on your mana. Feel free to change them to Armor Seals if you feel like it.
This is pretty obvious but I think I shouldn't ignore it. Since Talon is suppose to be played mid, he is going to be versing a lot of mid characters. Most mid characters are AP casters, meaning they are gonna deal AP damage. That is why I run MR glyphs; so i can take minimal harass early levels.
I feel that the masteries are pretty self explanatory. Twenty One points allocated in offense for maximum potency in damage on Talon because he deals a ton of damage. The other 9 points I allocate to defense cause it's just the way I run but feel free to allocate them into utilities.
What you should know
There are several things you need to do in order to win. One of them Riot stresses out but most people do overlook. Never rage at your teammates. What this usually causes is endless arguing between you and the person your arguing. Try to encourage your teammates to stop if it's between them. This is a team game and in order to win a team game, you need to cooperate with your team.
The other thing you need to know is there are many factors that contribute to calling someone fed; it's not only their kdr. So if u do find yourself 3-5, 0-3 or any kdr you don't find to be considered appropriate, it's not the end of the world. What makes Talon a good champion is his ability to not only snowball really well, but his easy farm. His rake and hydra combination can clear your camps and minion waves pretty swiftly.
And finally, if you are fed enough, buy oracles and wards so you can freely roam their jungle late game. It's not necessary but once you learn how to play Talon, you'll see how strong he can get.
